Adept are the leaders in bovine ingesta contamination control systems and are recognised as the industry standard. Ingesta contamination during protein processing is a serious risk to food safety and a cause of lost product. Adept have developed a range of weasand clips and plugs for cattle to help prevent this contamination.

Oesaphagus Clipping

Early control of ingesta is critical and Adept’s weasand clips provide secure and reliable weasand sealing.

The Adept clip is applied to the weasand (oesophagus) and pushed up to the base of the paunch using the Rodder tool. This process empties the weasand of any ingesta material and securely seals it in the paunch preventing any ingesta contamination occurring during processing.

Locating the weasand, separating it from the trachea with Adept’s purpose designed rodder (2), then applying the clip (1), hygienically stored and retrieved from the Adept clip dispenser (3), is recognised as best practice in modern animal processing.
